January 2016 Book Update

Happy new year 2’16!

As an update on the progress, which continues to be too slow, we are now hoping for the first book to be published in autumn 2016

Whilst it was originally planned to publish a small booklet on the operation against Gialo/Jalo, of something like 65 pages, the research on the subject has brought to light a wealth of new information, in particular also from the Italian side. This has brought us to about 150 pages plain text until now and we are still not at the end…

In the meantime we have also increased the format of the book, from the original 17×22cm we went to 19×27cm since we think that this suites much better to the grown dimension of the book.

We thank you for being patient.

We are still looking for relevant historical photographs of this desert operation. Further we are looking for historical photographs of the Jalo oasis in Libya.

If you think that you could contribute something to the project or if you have a particular interest in it – please address to info@desertstories.org
